Showboat Screening for Paul Robeson’s Birthday- FREE & Open to the public
Join ACP and the Paul Robeson House in celebration of Paul Robeson’s birthday for a screening of his acclaimed film, Showboat. Robeson was the epitome of the 20th-century Renaissance man—an exceptional athlete, actor, singer, cultural scholar, author, and political activist, who lived as a child in the neighborhood adjacent to The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. The film will be introduced by Ben Colbert, co-chair of the Paul Robeson Committee and Shirley Satterfield from the Historical Society of Princeton. Enjoy Robeson’s famous performance of “Ol’ Man River” and celebrate the anniversary of his 116th birthday with refreshments.
